Crafts, Pups and Stuff

I told you I would show you, so here goes….

My first cake of this class.  It certainly isn’t perfect, but I had a good time.

Ha ha, cute huh!  We decorated cupcakes this past week.  Didn’t do too well on those, but I took them as a treat to our book group last night and everyone loved them.  I kept a few to put on my tablescape.

This coming week we are going to decorate another cake with the flowers that we will be making at home.

Well, enough of that.  However, I must say that it tasted good.  I had a couple of slivers (just to see what it tasted like) then I tossed it out.  I just can’t see eating a whole cake by myself.

On to my next hobby, sewing.  I finally got my spring table runner all together.

I had to lay it on my sofa as I just finished tablescaping my table (which will be in a future post).

 I love the way it all went together.  I can’t wait to do a tablescape using it.

If you remember my Christmas wall hanging (which it too large to hang so will go over the back of my sofa at Christmas time),  I am actually going to put these together at the same time.  I have all my materials to back them and quilt them so that will be at my next sewing lesson.  I think I might be a little better at quilting than I am at cake decorating.

Thanks to all of you who commented on my son’s cellulitis of his leg.  He was able to make it back to California from our house but ended up in the hospital for the next three days – which included his birthday!  Apparently it got much worse.  I have seen a picture of it and my oh my, it looked horrible.  So deep deep red and swollen.  I won’t share it because you really don’t want to see it, trust me.  He is home now and back to work.  He is a teacher and can sit at the front of the class with his leg propped up.

 Last but certainly not least, the latest pictures of my girls.

Sugar Plum, she always sits so nice when I want her to pose, although she wouldn’t smile!

Ha ha, here is little Meeka who decided her picture would be best taken lying down and ignoring me.  Silly girl.
